PPGC’s Education Department is committed to improving the lives of youth, parents, and individuals in Texas and Louisiana through education and training. To keep our communities safe and adapt to a newly virtual world, we modified all learning into online sessions this year. This included our Summer Learning Series, which was held in both Spanish and English for the first time.
This year’s Summer Learning Series sessions were also offered to a new audience in addition to youth and parents: adults, educators, and professionals who work with youth. Sessions were offered by age group on topics such as healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, sexually transmitted infections, the basics of birth control, how to talk to your child about sexuality, and supporting students & answering tough questions.
“I wanted to say thank you and let you guys know that my daughter enjoyed the session from beginning to end. It completely changed her mood,” one parent said. “We’ve been home since March and have almost no interaction with anyone outside of our home. This was really good for her — not only educational, but fun. I’d like her to learn about such important topics and to feel comfortable talking about them.”
Your support provides critical education programs for people in Texas and Louisiana. When teens and their caregivers are given the information they need to make well-informed and positive decisions, they make their lives, their families — and even the world — better and healthier. Thank you for positively molding the future for generations to come.
